Today, I have a video! I know, they are few and far between and I know a lot of people prefer to see how things are made rather than just the photos of the finished results. I am trying to fit in the time to make more videos and I guess we will see how that goes! I think if I made more videos my processes would speed up as I became more accustomed to filming. For me, one of the issues I have is that as soon as the camera turns on my creativity shrinks back in shock LOL. Hopefully, as I record more I’ll become more relaxed too. Anyway, I’m rambling today, here’s my card using the Falling Leaves Laying stencil from Simon Says Stamp.

AUTUMN LEAVES LAYERED STENCILS
STEP BY STEP HOW TO
- Cut a piece of Arches Hot-Pressed watercolour card to 6 x 6-inches.
- Tap the first layer of the Falling Leaves Layering Stencils to the bottom left corner of the watercolour card.
- Use a blending brush to blend Distress Inks through the stencil – see the supplies list at the bottom of this post for the colours I used.
- Repeat for the other three stencils.
- Spritz with water and add watercolour paints for extra depth and drama.
- Spritz again and then splatter with a solution of Perfect Pearls, White Gouache and left-over paint.
- When dry, die-cut the panel with a Basic Rectangle die.
- Die-cut the Thankful For You banner from more watercolour card, add foam adhesive and back with a piece of Burnt Orange card.
- Add the sentiment panel to the card with foam tape and then add the panel to a card base cut and scored from Neenah Desert Storm card.
- With an old paintbrush, apply Distress Collage Medium Matte randomly over the leaves and sprinkle with Distress Mica Flakes.
- Accent with Eggshell pearls kept in place with GinaK Connect glue.

So beautiful! Thank you for doing the video!
Absolutely Gorgeous card!!! Very rustic!! Love it!!!
Love how you softened the card after using the stencil! Your creativity is always inspiring. Thank you for the video too.
A video! Fall is my favorite season, and I love making Fall cards (just wish our weather in CA would cooperate). I didn’t see the point of these stencils until I saw your beautiful card. I love the vibrant colors of the original Distress formula and the crisp results you achieved. I would have called it done then, but that’s just me
Beautiful card. Thank you for all your great tips.
Like how you used these stencils to create your background, Debby. The spatters add to the Autumn look as leaves start to get a tattered look. tfs your card and video. Stay well.
Gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.
